For the first time in eight years, active service members are telling their children they should not go into the military. That's according to the 2017 Military Lifestyles Survey. "The most concerning thing is that 60 percent of the people surveyed, military members and spouses, said they would not encourage their children to go into the military," said Vice-Admiral John Bird, who is also the senior vice-president for military affairs at USAA.
The Sutherland Springs church shooting has re-ignited the debate on gun control. Several U.S. senators introduced a bill on Wednesday to ban the manufacture, transfer, or sale of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammo magazines. The AR-15 is the most popular assault-style rifle. It's been commercially available in the U.S. for decades, even during the 10-years of the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban. But now, some Texas lawmakers say its time to change that.
Unless you've worked there or have been there for a meeting or perhaps a military ceremony, you may not know what lies inside the massive USAA campus on Fredericksburg Road. There are so many amenities, and and so much culture that helps the company treat their employees and over 12 million members even better.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
